My mother-in-law, Pearl, gave me this old family recipe years before she passed away. People came from around the county (Frazeysburg, OH) to get some of Pearl's cookies from her and now, our entire family looks forward to enjoying Grandma Pearl's orange cookies. Yummy, moist and a delicious orange treat! Thank you Pearl, for sharing this delicious, refreshing cookie!
